Ground Transportation

A range of services offering travelers transportation to and from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) is available.

 

Taxi, limousine, van and shuttle services, and car rental companies all operate at MSP.

 

Public transportation is available through Metro Transit, which provides both Light Rail Transit and public bus service within the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

 

Jefferson Lines scheduled bus service is also available.

 

To and From the Airport

The most economical way to get from the airport to the hotel is on the lightrail system. Currently the Blue Line runs from the Mall of America, through both the Humphrey and Lindbergh terminals of the airport and into downtown Minneapolis. The closest stop to the Marriott is the Nicolett Mall Station (about a quarter mile walk). The full map can be access on the MetroTransit website http://www.metrotransit.org/metro-blue-line. Fares for a trip are between $1.75 and $3.00, depending on the time of day (http://www.metrotransit.org/fares). Passes can also be purchased: A day pass is $6 and a 6-hour pass is $4 (http://www.metrotransit.org/day-pass). These passes can be used on regular buses as well.

Several Shuttle companies offer service to and from the airport such as SuperShuttle and many taxis provide service as well. A shuttle fare is about $16 and a taxi fare is about $50. Uber and Lyft both offer service in Minneapolis-St. Paul as well as other car-sharing companies. Fares are generally comparable to taxis.

 

The Minneapolis Marriott City Center does not provide shuttle service.

Getting Around the City

MetroTransit in Minneapolis-St. Paul currently operates one lightrail line, the Blue Line that runs from the Mall of America to Target Field in Downtown Minneapolis. In mid-June, they will also be opening the Green Line that will run from Downtown Minneapolis (sharing several stops with the Blue Line) to Downtown St. Paul (http://www.metrotransit.org/metro-system). In addition, there are many buses that serve the entire metro area (http://www.metrotransit.org/imap/map.aspx). Within the downtown area, fares are only 50 cents.

Nice Ride offers bike-sharing in Minneapolis (https://www.niceridemn.org/). Bike rental is based on duration and ranges from $4 for 1 hour to $48 for 6.5 hours. There are stations throughout the metro area including one a block from the hotel near the Nicolett Mall Lightrail station.

Car2Go operates in Minneapolis with pickup/drop off throughout the Twin Cities (although not at the Airport). You must be a member of Car2Go to use the cars.

There is a great network of trails in the metro area that are open to bikers and walkers. Many roads are equipped to allow bikes as a part of traffic but there are many paths that are designated for bikes and pedestrians only (http://wwwdocs.minneapolismn.gov/bike/index.html).
